Ocean Safety personnel rescued two dozen people who ran into trouble in waters off Kahe Point Beach Park in Leeward Oahu today.
The people rescued at the beach, also known as Electric Beach, were a mix of snorkelers, stand-up paddlers and kayakers, said Shayne Enright, spokeswoman of the Honolulu Emergency Services Department.
Though the surf was flat, Enright said there is a strong current there and there were high winds today.
Of the two dozen people, Ocean Safety rescued about eight people nearly a mile offshore.
There is no lifeguard tower at the beach. Lifeguards patrol the area on Jet skis and vehicles.
Enright reminded the public to know your limits and that the ocean can be very dangerous.
